Randy and Yvette Maldonado, the owners of Fajita Junction, know the difference that high-quality ingredients make to any recipe. “Our meat is Angus beef that is fresh and never frozen, using the inside skirt of the meat with choice or better cuts,” Randy told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. “The meat is well trimmed so it has little fat before we put it on our mesquite grill.”
Angus beef fajitas are just one of the spot's popular, made-from-scratch dishes. The chefs also make fresh tortillas for tacos filled with chicken, sausage, or mollejas, as well as rice with Mexican spices and a chicken-stock base instead of the traditional tomato. The ambiance of Fajita Junction is a draw, too: high ceilings, wood floors, and flat-screen televisions entrance eyeballs with images of sports games and football players enacting soap operas on the sidelines.
